Well, I made this for my bff, who is the model in the picture. It’s for Krigslive VII (war larp 7), which was held last weekend. It was awesome. She loved it and it fit her like a dream. She told me that it is very comfortable, so I am very pleased with the result.
It’s made of the same pattern as my Kampfrau dress, and has a LOT of changes all over the bodice and sleeves. I had to make a new sleeve pattern for her, as she didn’t fit mine (she has more muscle power).
It’s made in a chocolate brown, medium weight wool with contrasts in dark brown, light weight wool on the hemline. Sand colored linen is used for interlining the bodice and sleeves and lining the bodice.
It closes with a single spiral cord wih a small metal lace end on the bottom. She is able to get in and out of it by herself.
She is wearing a short sleeved chemise under the dress, and it is similar to my Peaceful War Chemise.
chocolate brown medium weight wool, dark brown lightweight wool, sand colored medium weight linen, 2 m ribbon (inner closure), 1 m brown cord for closure, 1 metal lace end, tread.
We're wishing Meg a happy birthday with 50% off her favorite patterns.
